Program Minimum vs. CFHQ WOD
Just looking for feedback from anyone who has done both the Program Minimum, or Viking Warrior Conditioning or any other of the "set" KB programs out there and has done the dotcom WOD for as better base of conditioning for ACTUAL THINGS IN REAL LIFE...i.e. team sports, skiing, mountain biking, etc.

I did the dot com "as Rx'd" for about a year and had great conditioning for outdoor soccer in 2008. In 2009, I had moved on from the dot com and for the few weeks before the season I did the ETK PM. I actually think the PM was a better prep (probably due to less adrenal fatigue/better recovery). Just looking for others with experience or opinions. Thanks.

Did Pavel's program before switching over to CFWOD in late '08, was training both western boxing and MT probably 5-6 days a week at the time. Felt like I had more gas doing CF, but diet/lifestyle was also improved at the time. My .02.

I'll let you know. Due to a lack of both time and access to a gym Ill be doing Program Minimum for the coming months.

I followed WOD's for at least a year. My conditioning was good but I felt wiped out the whole time.

I like Pavel's saying....train as often as possible while being as fresh as possible.

That's definitely the way I'm leaning now. I have no desire to leave the gym and have to spend two hours gasping for air before I'm a functional member of the human race. Once is a while, sure but not as my every day training program.
